Nikon 1 V3 mirrorless camera and two new zoom lenses for the 1 system will be announced in the following days after missing the CP+ 2014 deadline.
The CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2014 should have been the birthplace of the Nikon 1 V3 camera as well as a couple of optics for the 1 mirrorless system, the rumor mill said.
As the event is over and the products are nowhere to be seen, the company’s fans may still be wondering what happened to these products and if they are coming at all. Well, the answer to the second question is “yes”. According to inside sources, the launch event is scheduled to take place soon, being only days or even hours away.
Nikon 1 V3 specs list includes 18-megapixel sensor and swiveling LCD screen
Meanwhile, the Nikon 1 V3 specs and some details regarding the lenses have been leaked on the web. The first intel refers to the design of the camera, which will be brand new, unlike any other 1-series MILC model.
It is reported that the mirrorless shooter will feature an 18-megapixel 1-inch-type image sensor, Expeed 4A image processor, articulated LCD screen which can be swiveled by up to 180 degrees, continuous shooting mode of up to 20fps, and a contrast AF system with 171 focus points.
The MILC will not offer a built-in viewfinder, but Nikon will introduce an external electronic viewfinder with a 2.4-million-dot resolution and a model number of DF-N1000.
A built-in flash will be available as well as a hot shoe mount for external accessories, such as an EVF or a flash. Extensive video features will also be available, although the previous rumors about the 4K video recording have not been confirmed.
Nikon also unveiling 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD VR and 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR lenses for 1-series MILCs
The launch of the pair of optics will not go unnoticed. The 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD lens will offer a 35mm equivalent of 27-81mm when mounted on CX cameras.
On the other hand, the 1 Nikkor VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 is a super telephoto lens. It provides a 35mm equivalent of 190-816m aimed at taking you as close as possible to your subject effortlessly.
The prices of these products are not mentioned in the latest leaks, albeit potential suitors do not have to wait for too long as the announcement date is nearing at a fast pace.
Although the information comes from reliable sources, remember to take it with a pinch of salt and to stay tuned for the official event!
